On our Tour of Scotland in 2019 we saw many bluebells and rhododendrons. The weather was mixed, but we had 5 glorious days on the coast. As well as visiting new places, we met up with and stayed with friends from the past who we don’t often see, which was lovely. We went to a variety of different places – grand houses and gardens, coast, villages and towns.
Our first stop was with a friend at Leek in Staffordshire with a visit to Chatsworth (Derbyshire),
then to Ullswater in the Lake District for a waterfall and fell walk and a night at Penrith.
then, passing Loch Lomond,
to Falkirk for 2 nights to visit
moving south we visited the mill village of New Lanark
and stayed for 4 nights at Galasheils, where we went to
Abbotsford – Sir Walter Scott’s home
Returning to England we stopped at
To return home we visited Castle Howard near York, stayed one night near Sheffield, then had a wet day at Leamington Spa, which we cut short.
A very enjoyable 3 weeks away
